ADVANTAGE TRUST
Advantage Trust Group Purchasing Organization offers small facilities outside of a hospital setting

user friendly portal, so staff can access the discounts and contact information
in a way that’s most relevant to them.  In addition to practice discounts, there are employee discounts.

                WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE PROGRAM
The State of Florida mandates that all businesses with more than 3 employees provide an insurance policy to pay for
medical treatment and salary benefits of injured workers. If you have fewer than 3 employees you are still liable for the
benefits of it, so it is beneficial that everyone purchase the insurance. Unlike other types of insurance where you get to
choose the ultimate cost via limits, covered events, deductibles, etc., Workers Compensation Insurance benefits  and
rates are set by the State Legislature and the Division of Workers’ Compensation Department of Financial Services. You
will pay exactly the same base price for this coverage no matter what insurance company you choose.

The only thing that distinguishes one company from the next is dividend programs (the ability to get premium back for
good claims experience). The problem is that the vast majority of medical groups   are too small to quality for a dividend
program. The solution is the new workers compensation insurance program established for the FWA members. By
grouping each FWA member into one single group, each medical practice is eligible to participate in a dividend program
based on the group’s overall performance and combined loss ratios. This program is being underwritten by OptaComp,
the workers’compensation affiliate of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. OptaComp is rated “A” (excellent) by A.M.
Best Company. Most FWA practices will go from the ability to get NO money back, to the potential to get up to 24.8% of
their premiums back with the FWA group as a whole if the claims experience is good.

                                                                  PHYSICIAN OFFICE SITE ASSESSMENTS
One of the tools available to all MAG Mutual policyholders is a Site-Assessment.  An assessment is an office practice  
risk assessment and review of key office systems that can impact the physicians and organizations professional  
liability exposures. The assessment takes an average of 3-4 hours spent with the office manager reviewing medical
records and various practice procedures and policies. The visit covers tracking and follow-up of orders, referrals and
correspondence; medical record documentation; communication and emergency medical event preparedness.  
Following the visit a written report is provided to the physician with recommendations, if indicated, to improve patient
safety and decrease the risk of a lawsuit and maximize defensibility of any subsequent lawsuits.  An Educational
Resource and Survey Supplement will also be provided to assist the practice.  The practice will be made aware of
additional resources available for their use such as on-line tools, handbook, forms, learning modules and more.  A
follow-up visit is usually scheduled for 3-4 months following the initial assessment to discuss the findings and any
changes that were made by the practice as a result of the initial visit.  A MAG Mutual representative is always available
  
to work with each office as the recommendations are implemented.  
Site Assessments do not have a negative impact on your premiums or relationship with MAG Mutual.  If you would like
 
to set up a Site-Assessment for your office or if you have had a Site-Assessment in the past and would like your office
re-evaluated, contact Dana Taylor at 804 935-7834 or 800 282-4882 ext 7834 or DTaylor@magmutual.com.
